You can’t have missed that this Friday is Christmas Jumper Day, a relatively recent annual event to raise funds for Save The Children, a great cause. I’m sure many schools and nurseries, like ours, will be encouraging little ones to rock up in their best festive knit for a donation to charity. Of course you can get in on the act too as The Christmas Jumper now seems to be THE must-have for every generation this month.
Two years ago I wrote a post entitled Christmas jumpers: less cheese, more style with ways to wear this increasingly popular piece of clothing which not too long ago was seen as a cringe-worthy fashion faux-pas. Whatever next, shell suits?! But I digress, the point is, if you don’t have a proper, Christmas-themed jumper in your winter wardrobe you’re like, so not cool any more. With this in mind I bring you my top 10 picks for women and some for the littlies too.
1. Sequin detail snowman, M&S | 2. Holly leaf, Dorothy Perkins | 3. Bright fairisle, H&M | 4. Sequin bauble, Boden | 5. Sequin detail Santa, New Look | 6. Polar bear, M&Co. | 7. Reindeer fairisle, River Island | 8. Sequin snowflake, M&Co. | 9. Sequin bow, M&S | 10. Mr & Mrs Claus, ASOS.
